## Suggested materials for adult learners and college students:

#### Ascend:

Ascend is an online program that builds your personalized study plan based on the results of a short quiz presented before you start each unit. Once you finish the quiz, you start working to master each concept by following The Ascend Math Solution Five Step Learning Method. A short test after each lesson checks for understanding of the topic and you automatically continue to the next lesson once you show mastery.

#### Basic Mathematics:

This series is extremely helpful to students currently enrolled in a basic mathematical skills course, a pre-algebra mathematics course, or for anyone wanting to review basic mathematical skills.

#### Calculus:

This series covers the material in a standard college freshman year calculus course, and is suitable for science and engineering majors. Topics covered include limits, continuity, differentiation, applications of differential calculus to graphing and optimizing functions, transcendental functions and their derivatives, integral calculus and applications to areas and volumes, L'Hôpital's Rule, sequences and series, elementary vector algebra with dot products and cross-products.

#### GED Math Prep:

An award winning team of math educators developed the GED Math Prep series, containing over 75 worked examples which will guide students through the process of learning how to work problems similar to those on the GED. In all, this comprehensive series contains over 10 hours of instruction plus over 300 pencil and paper practice problems. Sample problems include set up questions which encompass approximately 25 percent of the GED exam, problems demonstrating the use of a scientific calculator, graphic questions using pie charts, bar graphs and tables, and more! Problem solving, test taking skills and underlying processes are woven throughout the 5 sections of the series.

#### Probability & Statistics:

This series consists of 15 tapes containing 60 half-hour segments . The objective of this series is to give the student a resource in probability and statistics. The approach we used is to cover all the topics of the standard two semester course in Probability and Statistics, one topic per segment. For each segment, the basic set-up and theoretical framework is reviewed and then examples are worked illustrating the theory. Word problems of a realistic nature are emphasized throughout. The topics covered include frequency distributions, measures of central tendency of data such as the mean, and standard deviation, probability and conditional probability, random variables and expectations, binomial, normal, and Poisson distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, regression and correlation, goodness of fit, testing for normality, and analysis of variance.

#### Introductory Algebra:

This series is extremely helpful to students currently enrolled in a beginning algebra course, for review before enrolling in an intermediate algebra course, or for anyone wanting to review beginning algebra skills.

#### Intermediate Algebra:

This series is extremely helpful to students currently enrolled in an intermediate algebra course, for review before enrolling in a college algebra course, or for anyone wanting to review intermediate algebra skills.

#### College Algebra:

This series is extremely helpful to students currently enrolled in a college algebra course, for review before enrolling in a trigonometry or calculus course, or for anyone wanting to review their college algebra skills.

#### TI Graphing Calculator Tutorials:

These videos are approximately two hours in length and are designed to gradually take students through the features of the TI graphing calculators. These videos are designed for any students or professionals needing assistance in learning the features of the TI graphing calculators.
